<![CDATA[Transgender Comedian Challenges Trump's Military Ban]]> Thu, 27 Jul 2017 12:41:42 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/Screen-Shot-2017-07-27-at-2.44.54-AM.jpg

President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender people in the military has drawn criticism from both sides of the aisle on Capitol Hill, and late Wednesday it drew backlash from a “Tonight Show correspondent," who is a transgender comedian. 

After introducing news of the ban to his audience, host Jimmy Fallon welcomed Patti Harrison to offer her opinion and take on president’s decision. 

And she held nothing back. 

“As a trans person, it’s hard to articulate exactly how I feel,” Harrison told Fallon. “But I guess if I had to describe it I’d say, ‘Donald you’re so stupid. You are so stupid -- you're lucky you're so hot.'” 

Earlier Wednesday, Trump took to Twitter to announce a major policy change in the U.S. military, saying that "the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military."

He reasoned that the government "cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail," though studies have refuted those claims.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, said Thursday in a memo to all military service chiefs, commanders and enlisted military leaders that there will be no modifications" for now to current policy allowing all transgender people to serve openly. Nothing will change until Defense Secretary Jim Mattis receives the president's "direction" then issues "implementation guidance," he said. 

While talking with Fallon, Harrison said that perhaps the president just isn’t well-informed about the LGBTQ community. 

“I don’t even think Trump knows what transgender means,” she said. “He probably thinks transgender people are those cars that turn into robots.” 

The comedian then defended the “amazingly brave trans people” who should be able to join the military, as well as those who are already serving or who have in the past. She gave a shoutout to Kristin Beck, a retired Navy SEAL who served for 22 years and earned numerous medals, including the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. 

Harrison concluded by challenging Trump’s notion that transgender service members cause a disruption in the armed forces. 

“I get it,” she said. “If you constantly draw attention to yourself, spend all day distracting everyone and cost taxpayers millions of dollars, the perfect job for you isn’t the military, it’s the president of the United States.”

<![CDATA[Phelps Teases 'Awesome' Shark Race on 'Tonight']]> Fri, 21 Jul 2017 09:16:00 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-588641322.jpg

The world is standing by, waiting for the greatest Olympic swimmer of all time to finally meet his match — the great white shark. Ahead of a 100-meter race that kicks off Discovery Channel’s beloved Shark Week, Phelps visited “The Tonight Show” Thursday to reveal some details of the anticipated showdown.

Though great whites may haunt the imaginations of other land dwellers, Phelps seemed excited by his close encounters with the ocean predators, explaining that he had been fascinated with sharks from a young age.

And Phelp's well-informed love for the animals certainly showed while the 32-year-old chatted with "Tonight" host Jimmy Fallon.

Phelps, sporting a temporary shark tattoo, calmly explained that for the previously recorded stunt, Discovery pitted him against a great white that was “only about 8 feet.” (The average length of a great white is 15 feet, according to National Geographic.)

“Oh, is that it?” Fallon joked. 

Nevertheless, Discovery has promised a dramatic event. The network dubbed the face-off: “The battle for ocean supremacy,” with Phelps taking on the shark off the coast of South Africa. 

Yes, gold went up against white in the open ocean instead of in, say, adjoining pool lanes as Phelps is accustomed to. 

The shark was timed swimming for 100 meters in one area, while Phelps was timed swimming separately in another area with safety divers around him. 

The individual set ups were about more than just safety though, Phelps explained to Fallon, highlighting the challenges of competing against a wild animal. 

Sharks likely wouldn’t swim all 100 meters at full speed, which can top out at 15 miles per hour in short bursts, according to National Geographic. However, they have been reported to hit bursts of 25 or even 35 miles per hour, as Phelps noted. 

To compare, Phelps said he clocks in about 6 miles per hour in a normal race.

Also, great whites rarely swim in straight paths. Phelps said Discovery had to do its best to record the animal for an accurate and fair race, though the technical details have been kept under wraps before the air date.

So while it may not look exactly like an Olympic meet to home viewers, Phelps promised the race “was awesome.”

To further level the playing field, Phelps explained that he donned an especially buoyant wetsuit, one that allowed him to float more easily in the water. 

The athlete also strapped a man-made mono-fin to his feet. “So I could swim like a shark,” he said. 

Phelps kept coy with Fallon about just how much faster he propelled through the water with the fin. However, he told USA Today last week that he likely hit 8 to 10 miles per hour — impressive for a mere human but still slower than what his opponent is capable of.

Can a trained, 28-medal Olympian measure up to an evolved ocean predator? Only time will tell. “Phelps Vs. Shark” airs Sunday, July 23, at 8 p.m. ET on Discovery.
